Is it an Insurgency when Foreigners are fighting?

In a press release this week, the CENTCOM informed America and the Press, well Americans who go to the source of CENTCOM to get the truth, instead of the We are Losing in Iraq chant from the Hate America First Folks, and Press who had nothing better to do, that 48 "Insurgents" were tried and convicted last month by the Iraqi Courts.

BAGHDAD, Iraq – The Central Criminal Court of Iraq convicted 48 security detainees from December 8 to 28, for various crimes including murder, kidnapping, illegal possession of special category weapons, violation of the terrorist laws, failure to renew resident identification, possessing and using a fake ID, use or attempted use of explosives, and illegal border crossing.

If you bother to read the article, and Liberals won't, because they are afraid that truth might shake up their worship of the Propaganda tree, then you notice something, I know I did.

There are a bunch of folks mentioned in the story that aren't Iraqi. They are Saudi, Sudanese, and many other Nationalities.

The trial court found a Syrian man and a Saudi Arabian man guilty of violating Article 4/1 of the Terrorist Law. The defendants were captured June 19 in a targeted raid on Al-Qaeda members. The defendants were found guarding a house containing a hostage and both admitted that they were responsible for guarding the hostage. On Dec. 26 the trial panel considered all the evidence and sentenced the men to death.

The trial court found a Sudanese man guilty of violating Article 4/1 of the Terrorist Law. Iraqi Army Soldiers apprehended the defendant July 7, during a random bus stop. The defendant is a media leader for Al-Qaeda and produced videos and flyers for the organization. The defendant confessed to being a member of Al-Qaeda multiple times to both Iraqi and Multi-National Forces. On Dec. 12 the trial panel considered all the evidence and sentenced him to death.

I wonder, are they Insurgents, if they are Foreigners? What I mean is we are told by the Liberal Elite that it's the Iraqi's who are rising up against us, and to be sure most of the convicted mentioned in the Press Release are Iraqi, but there are a goodly number of other nationalities too.

Insurgent by the way is defined as follows by

1. a person who rises in forcible opposition to lawful authority, esp. a person who engages in armed resistance to a government or to the execution of its laws; rebel.
2. a member of a section of a political party that revolts against the methods or policies of the party.

I don't think that the Foreigners are technically Insurgents, it at least has a flavor of an internal power struggle in a nation. Terrorist is a better word to describe the people in Iraq.

a radical who employs terror as a political weapon; usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells; often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities

I wonder why the Libs aren't using a more accurate word. Simple, they are trying to frame the discussion as one of our losing, to make their fondest wish come true, American Defeat.

Think about why you haven't been informed of this information in your local paper. Wonder out loud about it to friends, because the only answer that would fit is that the News didn't think the existence of captured, and convicted terrorists in Iraq was newsworthy. However, the deaths of Americans is a big news story, in fact the only story we hear from the Nutroot pandering Media.
